We saw the Great North Run over the weekend. It's the world's most popular half marathon.
So popular that this is the start line about 10 minutes after the official start of the race. They are jogging on a highway, by the way. Pretty cool.
There were tons of crowds, so we couldn't manage to get a shot that didn't include other people's cameras.
This is a shot of one of the 4 bridges along the Tyne. If you look closely you can see the red umbrella of a certain religion. Just like home.
